Friday 23rd July 2021 saw a great day of cricket with OCC Women (Captained by Ridhi Kashyap) taking on MCC Women (Captained by Claire “Tails” Taylor) at Jordan Hill.
MCC won the toss and batted first declaring on 239 for 4 with a fine 103 not out from Mia Rogers and 53 from Tilly Mason. For OCC, Charlotte Hayes took 3 wickets.
OCC replied with 173 for 4 at close of play thanks to 48 not out from Meg Jones with valuable contributions from Numa Shah (28), Ellie Porter (27) and Izzy Kirby (35*).
